DRFC Doncaster Rovers - Season in numbers

The figures include league and cup games.

1 Rovers enjoyed just one home win in their last twelve games at the Keepmoat when they beat Burnley 1-0 thanks to an own goal.

2 Rovers had two players finish the season in double figures in the goal charts. Billy Sharp (16) and James Hayter (10) the two players who achieved the feat.

3 Number of Rovers players who received red cards last season, Simon Gillett, Sam Hird and Dennis Souza all receiving their marching orders. Sheffield United received the most with twelve whilst Cardiff City and Middlesbrough received the least with one each.

4 James Coppinger hit the woodwork on four occasions out of ten in total.

5 Rovers conceded five penalties last season. Sam Hird (twice), Billy Sharp, Neil Sullivan and Shelton Martis (all once) giving the penalties away.

It was also the number of games that James Hayter scored in consecutively between October and November.
